would expect to see in a banana republic, not the united states of america this. needs to be condemn in the strongest language possible and more importantly, the thugs committing these acts of violence need to be restrained and arrested. law & order has to prevail. if it doesn't, this violence will spread, there will be blood in the streets and at some point, some people may in fact die. that's the course we are currently -- the violence that we are seeing is, in part, a response to desperation by the labor movement. they know that the stars are aligned against them. they know their best days are in the past, not the future. they know they are losing membership, influence and power, even in states that are the birth place of the labor movement. as their power reside, their anger rises. as their anger rises, they are lashing out, using very dangerous rhetoric and violence. this is not going to work. point number 3, the mainstream media is once again showing an unbelievable double standard. tonight, we are dedicating an entire segment to this. number 4, president civility, president ob
